The Canucks have placed Ferland (head) on long-term injured reserve, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports. Ferland hasn't played since he suffered yet another head injury during last season's playoffs and at this point he's looking iffy at best to suit up at all in 2020-21. Vancouver should release another update on the 28-year-old winger if and when he's cleared to resume skating.
Ferland (head) will not be with the team for the start of training camp, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Ferland continues to deal with the effects of a concussion suffered back in October and appears no closer to getting back on the ice. At this point, the 28-year-old winger should be considered a near-lock for long-term injured reserve barring a drastic improvement in his recovery prior to Opening Night against Edmonton on Jan. 13.
Ferland (head) hasn't returned to 100 percent, as general manager Jim Benning told reporters, "If the season was to start right now, Micheal Ferland wouldn't be starting," Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Since Nov. 1, 2019, Ferland has appeared in just four games for Vancouver, a stretch of 70 games on the shelf including the postseason. At this point, the winger could be headed for long-term injured reserve to start the season. Even if healthy for Opening Night, fantasy players should probably stay away from Ferland until he proves he can be the same 40-point producer he was from 2017-19.
Ferland (undisclosed) will not be available for Game 7 against the Golden Knights on Friday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports. Ferland will miss his 15th straight contest Friday -- he last played on Aug. 4 against the Wild. Even if the Canucks win Game 7 and move on to the Western Conference finals, it's unclear if he'll be available during the next series.
Ferland (undisclosed) won't play in Thursday's Game 6 against Vegas, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Ferland will miss his 13th straight game with the issue, and there is no update on his injury status
